Celebrating what Alfreton has to offer!
AVBC commissioned Ashley Franklin to photograph traders in the town, part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund. We will share those photos in several posts to highlight some of the great businesses in Alfreton.

Let's support these local companies to succeed.

This post celebrates Curiosity Interiors of King Street, Alfreton. ‘Shop Curiosity Interiors and Add Sophistication To Your Home With Our Furniture Range’
